How Common Core Standards Will Change Florida Schools

Florida is one of 45 states which have fully adopted new English, literacy and math standards for K-12 schools.

The standards, known as Common Core, are intended to make sure every high school graduate can handle college-level work or find a job with which he or she could support a family.

The standards put more emphasis on fewer topics, will ask students to read more and require they back up their work with evidence and analysis.

Florida is one of 45 states which have fully adopted new English, literacy and math standards for K-12 schools.

The standards, known as Common Core, are intended to make sure every high school graduate can handle college-level work or find a job with which he or she could support a family.

The standards put more emphasis on fewer topics, will ask students to read more and require they back up their work with evidence and analysis.

The standards will also mean a new test to replace much of the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test.

A panel of experts recently discussed the standards at the Florida College Access Network summit.
